-- not just for the usa, but for planet earth. that's the message delivered by hurricane sandy, and by almost all the extreme weather of the past two years. and here in the first month of the new year, it's the message from the most informed scientists in the world. they're scared, for real. and they say that unless we slow the release of global emissions from fossil fuels, slow it enough to keep the planet's temperature from rising by two degrees celsius, or 3.6 degrees fahrenheit, the earth's polar ice sheets will melt away -- with catastrophic consequences. time's running out. not one, but two major scientific reports in the last few weeks have concluded that the rapid increase in fossil fuel emissions makes that increase of two degrees celsius all but inevitable. this headline in the "national journal" spells it out. "it's already too late to stop climate change." yet as the clock ticks away and warnings mount, official washington irresponsibly continues to look the other way. and so does the beltway press -- as demonstrated in that town hall debate last fall when cnn's candy crowley almo

expected to be very low. >> reporter: specifically, businesses felt after effects from hurricane sandy, and they were unwilling to spend with all the fiscal cliff uncertainty. on top of that, demand from europe as well as china was weak. but, here's the good news. a low earnings hurdle ultimately makes it's easier for companies to impress investors. and, s&p's sam stovall says they could get a little help from lower expenses. >> the things that might end up acting as tailwinds i think could be a near 8% decline in the cost of oil and also the reduction in the commodity costs. >> reporter: digging into the q4 numbers, six out of 10 sectors are expected to post a gain in profits, with financials and consumer discretionary stocks topping the list. on the other hand, the industrials sector has the weakest anticipated growth. still, anticipation of an anemic earnings season has yet to trouble the stock market. don't forget the s&p 500 hit a five-year high on friday. >> i think all of this has to do with anticipation. that things are expected to get better. that there is a muted v-shaped rec
